    French delivery truck hijacked, 6,000 copies of Modern Warfare 3 stolen

    Report: French delivery truck hijacked, 6,000 copies of Modern Warfare 3 stolen

    A delivery truck in Créteil, France carrying 6,000 copies of Modern Warfare 3 was hijacked and stolen on Saturday by two masked people, French news outlets TFI and Ultimate PS3 reported. The truck crashed with a car, and when the truck's drivers exited, two people in masks tear-gassed them before taking off with the games, TFI said. The shipment was reported to be worth 400,000 euros ($551,000).

    If you're in the Créteil area and happen to see two people in a delivery truck grinning like maniacs and most likely high-fiving a lot, you may want to contact the authorities. And everyone -- let's settle down. Modern Warfare 3 comes out on Tuesday. It's not worth jail time to play this one a few hours early.

    This is a damn shame. Last year it was Black Ops, now this? People are so damn thirsty for a damn game nowadays SMH.......The crazy thing is, that they'll give out a few copies to those they know, and the rest they'll sell online. How crazy is that?

    Friggen losers, is the game really worth potential jail time? No.

    People can just pick up a 12 pack of Moutain Dew for some in-game perks and be on the same level with anyone getting a jump on playing the stolen copies lol.

    What good will getting the game a few days early do? First off, hijacking a shipment to get the game is STUPID. Secondly, if they were planning to play multiplayer, they won't be able to play against many people. Damn, they've taken their fanboyism to a whole new level. They should really get some therapy.

    For some strange reason I have a feeling they were after the $551,000 the shipment is supposedly worth, rather than playing the game a few days earlier. But with you kids these days, who the hell knows anymore...

    They didn't hijack the shipment to play the game. They hijacked it to sell the damn things.

    Bingo. Same thing happened when Gas sky rocketed. Since MW will probably break another record in sales, it's a gold mine.
